    It specifically mentions the Old World and 'taking directions from the first and second editions'. 
    I just might be getting excited about this now (though it's ultimately going to depend on what they mean by 'taking directions from').

    Another update from Server Goddess: she has the new Linux server set up, and is in the process of configuring it. Once that's complete, she'll begin migration of the forums over. The goal is to make sure that forums still function as-is, with the alternative of archiving the older ones as a last resort if the migration doesn't work as intended.

    Server Goddess is going to be upgrading the server in the next week or two. Without going into too much detail, this will keep all posts intact while upgrading the forums significantly. Once I know more, I'll definitely share with ya'll here.

    GrimAndPerilous.com got a reaction from MagnusSeter in Games Workshop Concluding Deal For Licensing Rights To Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay   
    Here are the facts:
    I was in direct talks with GW's licensing department to purchase the license myself out of pocket. It was revealed to me in the conversation, however, that the license was no longer available as they were concluding a deal with a European publisher for "world rights". 
    Here's my best guess:
    World rights means both distribution of legacy material, and the rights to create a new edition (with narrative material dictated by GW, spelt out in the licensing contract agreement). Given the discovery of Cubicle 7 as the publisher in DriveThruRPG from my personal files, I believe they are the new European publisher:

    In addition, Cubicle 7 has been posting cheeky responses in their Facebook feed:

    Whether Cubicle 7 will issue new material for WFRP 2e/3e or create a new WFRP 4e set in the Old World/Age of Sigmar is a story yet untold. Color me surprised if they don't take a stab at it. Why else acquire the license? Gaining the rights to PDF sales for a niche RPG without producing new material wouldn't be worthwhile for a licensee.
    An announcement will be forthcoming, but I doubt it happens until February.

    It was just confirmed to Grim & Perilous Studios last night by GW’s licensing department that they are in the process of concluding a deal with a major European publisher for world-wide distribution rights to Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. While no other details were shared, we can only speculate which major European RPG publishers may have acquired the rights.

    As of 3:26PM central, Matthew Pook completed his edits for ZWEIHÄNDER! He managed to cut out a lot of the redundancy, eliminated the more confusing elements and massively swept out font errors, typos and removed excessive use of semicolons. We also backed in many of the errors the community caught, and updated several rules in the book that were confusing. We are so incredibly lucky to have him onboard to bring ZWEIHÄNDER to market!
     
    In the meanwhile, take a look at a few snapshots from our early proof of chapters 1-3. Dejan and our Mother of Dragons Milena have been working hard to whip this book into shape, and it shows. Note that we still have a long way to go, as we're still working on font sizing, image nudging, borders and other technical changes for print. They are by no means final:

    We have some very exciting news to share for fans of WFRP 3e!

     

    In light of the licensing issues between Games Workshop and Fantasy Flight Games, our team has been working on an optional rule to “back in” the dice mechanics from Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay third edition. It took quite a bit of retooling, but fortunately, ZWEIHANDER’s ruleset has proven to be very accommodating to this approach.

     

    Our play test phase begins tonight, to see how well they gel within ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG‘s framework. Providing everything goes according to plan (with tweaks here and there), we will publish these optional rules as a free PDF in the coming weeks, leading up to the print edition.

     

    Did you miss out on ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG on Kickstarter the first time around? We are keeping Late Pledges open at CrowdOx until October 31st.

    ZWEIHANDER Grim & Perilous RPG may have a total dice conversion option for WFRP 3E to ZWEI. No cards, no mess and no fiddly bits necessary! It's something we've been working on, and hope to present during our Kickstarter phase.
     
    Otherwise, ZWEIHANDER Grim & Perilous RPG may be what you're looking for, if you desire a well-balanced D100 game. No bloat, no mess and no fudging - period. From introductory to end game balance, all mechanics work soundly for characters in their first career to those in their last career.

    Hey everyone, I just wanted to use this thread about one game to advertise for my own upcoming game, BLUNDERBUS Grim and Perilous RPG. It will be "inspired" by the first edition of a famous RPG, and purports to fix issues with it that were already fixed by the game's second edition! As part of my business plan I will buy a bunch of copies of this old game and tear out all the pages, leaving only a note with a link to my game's Kickstarter. I will then distribute these improved books within the gaming community by throwing them through the windows of everyone who ever posted a thread, played, or thought about the original game. Look for my Kickstarter this fall!
